Just came from these guys yesterday. Hands down. Best customer service and technicians I've met. Totally worth the hour and half drive. Sean the installer was awesome. John Voss and Brian were on constant communication throughout this process. If AWE made more performance parts for the CTR I would definitely be heading down there more. Thanks guys !

Thanks for making the pilgrimage to AWE HQ! It's been CTR city here lately with is fantastic. Many people are unaware we do all sort of installation and service work here and Sean is a Master Tech and former UTI instructor and has a wealth of knowledge in the car game. Hopefully others follow suit! I think we have 2 more coming in this week. ;)

For those running the touring with a catless DP, how does the sound change? I enjoy the catted and stock DP sound videos done by AWE, but there's like 1-2 with a catless on YouTube and they're not done very well. Mine arrives today either way.

My .02 - The cat on the CTR is pretty effective as a muffler. The Touring isolates and cancels drone frequencies but isn't meant to quiet the car down like a muffler-based system would. With the stiff engine bushings and mounts on the CTR, expect interior NVH to increase quite a bit losing the cat. I always recommend catted DPs for this reason, but understand the price/gain value proposition of the catless DP.

Others running this set-up, please jump in!

I don't mind noise/cabin noise at all, just as long as it doesn't change the overall sound of the exhaust notes. I know it'll amplify it quite a bit, but as long as it keeps the tones of what I hear with the catted/aftermarket catted, just louder, that's my biggest concern. The exhaust notes of both videos released by AWE were why I picked it.

Can report back. Had lift access today and got everything installed. With a catless DP, it sounds the same to me, just amplified like I expected. Went and had fun in a tunnel near me for a bit and left before I got myself in trouble. Install was smooth and once I watched a video on the FP it took me about 5 minutes to do. The rest was simple. With a catless DP it’s loud, but the drone inside isn’t nearly as bad as my R400 ever was, so to me it doesn’t bother me at all.

I’ll try to get a few videos (granted they’ll be iPhone) when my girlfriend is back in town and I can do them not at my house so that my neighbors don’t hate me. The sound sounds very similar to the sound of your aftermarket DP video, just with the high notes cutting through a bit more. At cruising speeds the drone is nonexistent off throttle and when you open the throttle, with my music at normal levels I hear it, but not enough to bother me. I do have rattle so I need to find what shield it’s hitting because I pulled the front shielding back away from the piping but it sounds almost like it’s the mid pipe shield, so probably just need to adjust the pipe a bit.

I'm going to go with awe. This is the review I needed. Thanks. Ditching Freddy's stupid leaking flange...sounds like a 92 civic lx farting

Found my rattle. The 180 muffler tech piece was in contact with the heat shielding below the trunk. Bent the shielding up a bit and away from the piece and no more rattle, also significantly reduced the cabin noise I was having too.

Drove to AWE last week to have them install a touring with black tips. Beautiful facility. This is my 5th exhaust from them, 4 on Audi's in the past so I was really excited when I heard they made one for the CTR. Let me say I am SUPER picky with my exhausts. I had the Greddy HG on my last CTR and while it sounded decent, the drone was horrible. Sold that for a huge loss and kept my muffler delete which was..fine.

I have 350 miles on the new exhaust and it's amazing. NO drone whatsoever. I feel like it's smoothing out just a bit as the miles go on-which is great. Cruising on the highway no issues-I have a wife and 2 young kids who would be sure to complain if it bothered them. It burbles on shifting which is really cool. Another thing I am noticing is the stock "lumpy" feeling when accelerating 1/4-1/2 throttle has disappeared-it is SO smooth.

I'll post another short review when I get to the 1,000 mile break in. Sean and Dave thank you!

AWE-what do you think about me throwing a little high temp black paint on the end of the muffler to stealth it a bit? Would that cause any issues?
